, but still you need to have a critical mass in order for this to work. i think for democrats pushing on obama, i think that's probably a good thing. you know, last week richard blumenthal was on your show, you know, really issuing quite a tough warning to the white house about this. i think it's because democrats paid a pretty big price in 2010 for obama care. they lost the house. and i think democrats going into the midterms who are running in 2014 want to run on a success. they want people to have -- as carl said, they want people to have health care. they want to be able to show that this works. >> kathleen sebelius has been in the middle of this, carl, and is going before that committee on wednesday. what does she have to say? what can she do? >> i'm not in the -- giving cabinet secretaries advice. what has to be done is a show of recovered competence, and this has not been a very competent rollout. the president of the united states ought to be saying, look, we have screwed up in terms of how we have rolled this thing out. we're going to learn from it. but let's not be defeated, and let'
's interesting. usually it goes along partisan lines. democrats say this does not fit the obama brand and what obama promised but republicans are saying this is part of national security. and the white house struck an interesting tone too. the president said we're going to try to roll these back and look at best practices and scale these back but he also said every country does this and wants to do this but we scoop up a lot more information so we get criticized. that's not a great rational that other countries look at and take to heart. the president has to strike a better tone. >> it's safe to say david, because this is nothing new, would you say that other countries probably have similar communication tools in place to find out what's happening here in the u.s.? that probably is the case? >> possibly but i'm not sure that it's as sophisticated. we may take better precautions but i'm sure that other countries are trying to do it. absolutely. the other question is as the president says our techniques and practices may be at a higher level. again, i'm not sure that's going to go over well in a

. >> i'm not talking about that. and there aren't enough democrats and progressives who have the same evangelical secular evangelical fervency that david's talking about to defend in a moral way the role of government. i think president obama tries to do it. he speaks the words, but you don't always feel the emotion behind it and you don't feel the struggles behind it. every generation has to fight for these things anew. and there's a generational struggle every time out. i think right now the sense of mission and fervency on the right as represented by somebody like ted cruz is fiery, is attractive to their base in a way that i'm not sure all the time that president obama's is to the base of progressives and the democratic party. >> i agree. >> so cruz is operating -- cruz is fighting on the other team's turf at this point. >> yeah. but i tell you, real quick here david. i want you to finish up. if you're a minority in this country, you can hear cruz. if you have doubts like a lot of people do about their religion, if you have any kind of secular attitudes or if you have any liberal

had a veried about election in november -- very bad election in november if you were the obama white house or democrats. but after that we had been in a very tough situation, yet i had been privileged to be part of working out a compromise deal in the lame duck that probably didn't make anybody, or definitely didn't make anybody entirely happy, didn't make us and many democrats happy because we extended some of the tax relief at the top that we didn't think were the most fiscally responsible thing to do but we did it in a context where we extended long-term unalignment. middle class tax relief and a new payroll tax cut. and we surprised markets and growth was actually lifted up a half percent almost everywhere. beginning of 2011 i think we were looking at 3% growth. i understand things happen right after that, i barely remembered where the bathroom was when you had both the developments in the middle east raising gas prices, you had the unprecedent eed natural disaster in japan that had a much, much deeper and more harmful on the global economy than anyone expected. those are the thi

in the senate. i can't get a bill barack obama, the senator, sponsored himself. i can't get the democratic senate to bring that up. how in the world can that be. if you haven't paid your federal taxes, you said, if you want to get a federal contract you should be prohibited from doing that. barack obama the senator agreed with that, i'm agreeing with it now, yet we till can't get that kind of bill done, it's just another symptom of the two sides working together. i want to be that person. i'm a tea party guy but i want to work in a bipartisan way to strive forward but it's just not happening and it's very frustrating. >> at the same time on health care, do you think with all the problems with website, we're all acknowledging and ridiculinridin fact people tell me, i.t. people, if you don't know what is wrong with the code, you're really going to have to start from scratch. they don't know how there's an easy fix to this. at some point if the website works, is it possible republicans in general were wrong, that giving health care to however many million more people is bottom line a good thi
obama's desk say? >> i think it was good advice for that democratic president and good advice for this democratic segment. we saw that segment when he was introducing the new f.b.i. director, he doesn't engage. if he doesn't talk about it, the media says let's blame sebelius, the republicans, sequester and go forward. the president has a clear cut strategy of the opposite of the buck stops here. just ignore the buck. jon: speaking of obamacare, this is the president's signature achievement. he's talked about that since practically day one of his administration. kathleen sebelius says that the president wasn't aware of the problems with the rollout of the website until the first couple of days. >> again, this is an attempt to pile on, he can do nothing right to conservatives. everything he does is wrong. even when he went examine got osama bin laden he was accused by conservatives of all he did was give the order. he had nothing to do with it. i don't expect the president to be in on the mine -- minutia of the website. who is the president who said i don't remember, i don't rec

that really concerns me about you democrats and you liberals, all you want to do is raise taxes and get more money out of the wealthy, all you're going to do is spend it. wait a minute. president obama has given the sequesterer numbers a chance. remember, july and august of 2011 when boehner came out and said i got 99% of what i wanted? we have taken, the liberals, the numbers from the conservatives when it comes to sequestration. we have reduced federal spending. we have reduced the deficit in half. so this idea that if we get more money to the treasury from the wealthiest americans and all the democrats are going to do is go out and spend it, there is no record of that under the obama years. stick around. rapid response panel coming up. >>> i'm jackie deangelis with your cnbc market wrap. a mixed day for stocks. the dow losing 1 one point. the s&p gaining two. industrial projection only edging up by .6% in august. and higher mortgage rates taking aa toll on the housing market. home sales plunging 5.6% in september. and tweeting a coffee to a friend is now possible. starbucks launching the
with the issues with the website and president obama obviously not knowing about that before the launch of people on the hill, democrats too starting to wonder about what's going on? >> he has often said that he didn't know what was going on with the website. he even said now in a meeting last week with his top former, you know, axelrod, gibbs, everyone, if we fix the website, everything will be fine. that is a dismissive answer. it's not an engaged answer. it's not accountable. he can't pretend he doesn't know and walk away from problems anymore because he has been caught too many times out of the loop. he can't do his job that way. >> thank you all so much. appreciate it. >>> next, he's in his 80s, recently single. his empire is under fire but is rupert murdoch banking on a comeback? >>> plus, it's a bit pricey for a raffle ticket but the winner takes home a million dollar masterpiece. you can always do something better for yourself. and better is so easy with benefiber. fiber that's taste-free, grit-free and dissolves completely. so you can feel free to add it to anything.
